Blue Blood Brewing Co. was founded in December 2011 by three buddies, from the Lincoln Police Department, that had a love for craft beer and the Lincoln community. The President and Co-Founder, Brian Podwinski, was injured in a training accident leading him to a passion that sparked a light in the Lincoln community. From the time of his retirement to this day, Podwinski has had the support of his team and a team of investors that have poured their hearts and souls into the brewery. It is this passion that fuels their craft.
In May of 2016, Blue Blood Brewing Co. moved to its new 12,000 sq.ft. brewery and taproom which sits above Robber’s Cave, a 5,000 sq.ft. maze of sandstone cave tunnels, the majority of which was created as lagering caverns in 1869 by Lincoln’s first brewery, Pioneer Brewing Co. The brewery also hosts a full menu brewpub adjoining the solid wood and dark metal taproom, overlooking its state-of-the-art brewing facility.
